Dear Bill ... this is Harold, Peggy Peterman's (Room 207) friend and daily visitor.
My sincere condolences to you and your family on the passing of Josie !!
As you might know, Peggy passed away on April 8th, just over 2 weeks into the C19 lock-down. She was 94.5 years old ... and she was reunited with her husband, Bob that Wednesday early morning. My thoughts are with you at this sad time, and I hope you soon manage to remember and focus on all the fond memories ... thereby pushing sadness aside.
Similar to me with Peggy, you visited Josie every day - often twice ! You and Josie sitting there after 7pm, watching WOF and Jeopardy as I might have waited for Peggy to be put in bed ... is a vivid memory for me.
God bless you, Bill ... & be well (-:

Our deepest sympathy to you Bill and your family. She was a very sweet and kind lady. She and Nicholas had a special relationship along with my mom.
